About Us

Women Win is the global leader in girls’ and women’s empowerment through sport. We leverage the power of play to help adolescent girls and young women build leadership skills and become better equipped to exercise their rights.

Since 2007, we have impacted the lives of 2,822,400 adolescent girls and young women in over 100 countries. This is possible thanks to collaborations with a wide variety of grassroots women’s organisations, corporates, development organisations, sports bodies and government agencies. Women Win currently supports initiatives in Asia, Africa, Middle East, North and South America.

We achieve our mission by connecting the global sport, development and women’s movements. As we grow, we continue to develop new tools and ways to promote sport as a strategy to empower adolescent girls and young women, including open source guidelines and grassroot approaches. We learn, document, and share the impact of gender-sensitive sport programmes with a clear women’s rights approach.
